balanced. conservatives have overshot so often and gone after obama for everything. the whackos calling him a secret muslim and saying he wasn't born here. so when there is something that deserves our attention i think they lose some altitude and that works to the benefit of the white house. but we have to be honest about the fact that this is not good. and if the white house lawyers knew we found out in april about this irs issue, why didn't they bring it to the attention of the president so he didn't have to find out about it at the same time other people did. martha: what about that, tucker, in terms of the justice department doing the investigation into the irs? is that too close a relationship for us to get an honest answer, an honest investigation there? >> it's a sad day when you have to ask a question like that. but the idea that the justice department couldn't be trusted to do a basic criminal investigation is scary. i don't take it on faith that they didn't know. they lied about benghazi, that word is not too strong. martha: should there be an independent investigation
